Sustainable Tourism for Africa

Sustainable Tourism Development for Africa

Art in Tanzania is running sustainable safari and tour operations in Tanzania as part of NGO fundraising to run the community work. Interns help to develop the sustainability of the safaris and tours. You develop the digital marketing efforts and give visibility to the sustainable status of tours and safaris.
Commonly safaris are performed by tour agents located in Western countries. They sell the safaris but only part of the money then actually comes to Tanzania to support the local economy. Typically, villages around famous National Parks are the poorest of the poor. Art in Tanzania’s tour income stays to Tanzania in full and the profits are used for supporting the Tanzanian economy and the activities in community development programs. Art in Tanzania tour operations takes clients to the national parks and game reserves such as Serengeti, N’gorongoro, Lake Manyara, Selous, Mikumi, and Ruaha. We also take tourists to Mt Kilimanjaro as well as to the Zanzibar Islands. We develop several one day trips as bird watching, sports, music, Zanzibar activities, Coral Islands trips and so on. Participants assist in guiding tasks, developing daily programs, customer service, and marketing. Our marketing is mainly social media-based, but we also develop networking to get more visibility to reach our target groups around the world.
